In fact, a whole hour went by before contestants started turning in above-average performances, and even then, only one pair impressed the judges enough to earn a perfect score. (Shocker of shockers: It was Bindi and Derek.)

Andy Grammer had to perfect dance steps first made famous by Gene Kelly. Bindi Irwin had to master that lift from Dirty Dancing. Heck, even DWTS alumna Leah Remini had to take Erin Andrews’ place as this week’s sideline reporter — and boy, did she make Alexa PenaVega angry.

Alexa PenaVega's scores have been inconsistent this season on "Dancing With the Stars." Last week's "Most Memorable Year" routine was her worst yet. She bobbled a step with pro partner Mark Ballas, and the judges gave her scores so low she was near the bottom of the leaderboard. But the dreaded "Switch-Up" week turned out to be her salvation: she received the first perfect score of the season (40 out of 40). -Break- Click Here to make your own 'Dancing with the Stars' predix & win prizes Bindi Irwin had thrown down the gauntlet on "Most Memorable Year" night, when she and pro partner Derek Hough performed a contemporary routine dedicated to her late father, Steve Irwin.
